Student groups at all participating high schools for the Bucks County High School Seatbelt Safety Challenge had the opportunity to submit votes to determine the winner.

The winning video was put together by students Emma Schweizer, Jordyn Collins, Tyler Dinn, and Christopher Fasano under the direction of technology education teacher Mr. John Benedix.

“I’m extremely proud of this group of students,” said Benedix upon hearing the news CB East was voted the winner. “Their hard work, creativity, and application of media production skills really shined through in this project. It was a blast supervising them throughout the process. They’re a great group of kids and they will be missed after they graduate.”

The Central Bucks High School East technology ed department received a $500 cash grant from TMA Bucks and the PSA will air on Comcast networking in the future.

Other schools that submitted videos this year were: Central Bucks High School South, Council Rock High School North, Holy Ghost Prep, Neshaminy High School, New Hope-Solebury High School, Palisades High School, Pennsbury High School, Quakertown Community High School, Harry S Truman High School, Upper Bucks Technical High School, and William Tennent High School.

“The TMA was pleased to see 12 schools submit videos this year which matched the most ever submitted,” said TMA Bucks executive director Stephen Noll. “The creativity delivered by the students in getting such important messaging across continues to impress us year after year.”

As part of the annual Bucks County High School Seatbelt Safety Challenge all participating high schools had the opportunity to produce and submit a 30-second video PSA on teen driver safety.

The winner of this year’s Seatbelt Challenge was announced earlier this month as Council Rock High School North had the highest overall seatbelt use (97 percent) over 20 other Bucks County high schools that participated in the challenge while also having the greatest percentage increase in seatbelt use over all schools at four percent (93 % in fall to 97 % in spring).

“Comcast is extremely proud to continue to sponsor the TMA Bucks Teen Driver Safety Video PSA Challenge as this outstanding and innovative program continues to see students in Bucks County collaborating together and creatively creating important messaging aimed at their peers that can have such a positive impact,” said Brian Jeter, Comcast’s director of government affairs.
